Straw painting of the Aztec God of September, made in Mexico

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Metal framed straw painting representing the Aztec God of September, the "most beautiful flower month" in their opinion. Their name for this time of year is "Tlaxochimaco". The x is pronounced with an s sound. Other than that the word is pronounced pretty much as it is written. (Use Spanish vowel sounds.)
The image is constructed entirely of colored pieces of straw. Now that takes a lot of pacience. The artist is Arturo Hernandez formally of Puerto Vallarta who, I believe, now lives in Mexico City. The figure is directly from the Aztec Calendar carrying a shield and war impliments and wearing an elaborate head dress. The picture is matted in a light blue and framed in pink metal to high light the pink shades in the straw painting.
Makes a great present for someone who is into Mexican archeology and was born in September. I have picture like this for other months also. Just ask.
